Assessing vulnerability to COVID-19 infection

The government has issued guidance about staying at home and away from other people to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition, guidance has been provided for people who are considered to be at high risk from coronavirus (clinically extremely vulnerable) and for people at moderate risk (clinically vulnerable). Many people remain unsure about whether they should return to work and under what circumstances. Occupational health practitioners may be asked to advise.
